here's a crazy simple one for you. so easy i almost didn't post it.
it's quicker than this stovetop mac & cheese and takes the same amount of time as the blue box.
and if you're a coffee drinker and enjoy cheese (like that's a real question), you probably have everything in your pantry to make it...
...and i made it up as i went along, so the measurements are approximate. if you want more cheese, add it. if your cheese sauce looks a little thin, add a touch more half & half, but go easy on it. a little goes a long way.
lazy woman mac & cheese
10 minutes, serves one
for each serving -
1/2 cup dried short cut pasta, i used ditalini
2 tablespoons half & half or whole milk (a good size splash)
3 tablespoons shredded cheddar cheese (a palmful)
1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese (a little less than half the cheddar)
salt & pepper
- cook the pasta according to the package directions.
- when the pasta is done, add the half & half to the pan. if you have an electric stove like me, put the pan back on the hot burner and leave the burner off. if you have a gas stove like i wish i do, put it over super low heat. warm the half & half for 30 seconds to a minute.
- season with salt & pepper and mix in the cheese.
- when the cheese is melted, stir in the pasta. ta da. easiest saturday lunch ever.
